It’s been a rather entertaining first round as the first 20 picks are in the books.
Most notable so far was the pick of Shea McClellin by the Bears. Many are thinking they Bears picked him to keep him from the Packers. It was a solid pick for the Bears and will be a player with the status of a Brian Urhlacher.
